China remains high on the agenda at the G7 summit

Published

on

Foreign ministers from the Group of Seven wealthy nations have released a strongly worded communique following their first face-to-face talks in two years.


China’s poor human rights record and its economic bullying were at the top of the agenda for the meeting in London.

In a 12,400 word communique, issued following the meeting, the group committed to working collectively to “foster global economic resilience in the face of” what it declares “arbitrary, coercive economic policies and practices.” 

The collective pushback comes after China targeted specific Australian industries, amid a major breakdown in ties between Canberra and Beijing.

G7 nations have also condemned China’s human rights record. The foreign ministers say they are “deeply concerned” by “the targeting of Uyghurs, members of other ethnic and religious minority groups, and the existence of a large-scale network of ‘political re-education camps, and reports of forced labor systems and forced sterilisation.”

Leaders unite at the G7 summit.

Russia has also been criticised by the Group of Seven rich democracies for trying to undermine democracies.

Despite the foreign ministers strongly condemning China and Russia, the group won’t be taking any concrete action. It will be up to individual countries to decide what action – if any – they would like to take.

Extremism top concern for U.S. voters ahead of election

Published

on

Worries over political extremism and threats to democracy have surged to the forefront as the primary concern for U.S. voters, setting the stage for a high-stakes showdown in the upcoming November election.

The three-day Reuters Ipsos poll, which concluded on Sunday, found that 21% of respondents identified “political extremism or threats to democracy” as the nation’s most pressing issue, narrowly edging out concerns about the economy and immigration.

President Joe Biden appears to hold a slight advantage over his predecessor, Donald Trump, in addressing this issue, with 34% of respondents believing Biden has a better approach compared to 31% for Trump.

The findings underscore the deeply polarized political landscape in America, with Democrats prioritizing extremism as the top issue, while Republicans overwhelmingly focus on immigration.

Independent voters

The poll also highlights the pivotal role of independent voters, with nearly a third citing extremism as their primary concern, followed closely by immigration and the economy.

This suggests that the handling of extremism could significantly influence voter behavior in the upcoming election.

The rise of extremism as a top concern comes amid ongoing political turmoil, with Trump continuing to challenge the legitimacy of U.S. institutions and perpetuate false claims of election fraud.

His rhetoric has not only fueled division but also incited violence, as seen in the January 6, 2021, assault on the U.S. Capitol.
